201. Caesar Salad p.136

201. Caesar Salad p.136

I can’t find the recipe online.
Caesar salad is pretty much always good. The only way to really truly mess it up is to use wilted, or flavorless lettuce. I’ve seen it done, I had a chicken Caesar at a Boston Pizza that was an insult to the whole concept of food, but generally they’re a [...]

163. Grilled Tuna with Warm White Bean Salad p.299

163. Grilled Tuna with Warm White Bean Salad p.299

The recipe in the book is similar to this one on Epicurious, except that the book calls for larger (6 oz) tuna steaks.
This dish was a triumph. As I’ve mentioned before my dining companion isn’t a fan of fish, and the book has 95 Fish and Shellfish recipes for us to get through. While she’s [...]

118. Frisée Salad with Lardons and Poached Eggs p.139

118. Frisée Salad with Lardons and Poached Eggs p.139

The recipe on Epicurious helpfully notes that frisée is curly French endive, The Book does not. I really don’t know much about salad greens and this one stumped me. I thought it was the curly lettuce I picked up, but I was wrong. My dining companion is a salad impresario, she has an eye for [...]

115. Grilled Calamari with Arugula p.344

115. Grilled Calamari with Arugula p.344

The recipe
This dish was fun to prepare, fun to serve, and fun to eat. I served it at a friend’s place for a pot-luck. Bringing a bunch of squid over to someone’s house might seem a bit weird, but it worked out really well.
I broke the squid down and scored the tubes at home. Incidentally [...]

24. Green Bean Salad With Pumpkin Seed Dressing p.143

24. Green Bean Salad With Pumpkin Seed Dressing p.143

the recipe
I love cold green bean salads, they’re so quintessentially French countryside. When I’m eating them I can’t help but feel I’m sitting in the back garden of the old farmhouse, outside Lyons, I stayed at one summer as a teenager.
This dish wasn’t particularly French, or entirely what I expected it to be, but that’s [...]

1. Baby Greens With Warm Goat Cheese p.131

1. Baby Greens With Warm Goat Cheese p.131

the recipe
Ahh, you always remember your first. This was a great little salad, mesclun in a simple vinaigrette topped with goat cheese croquettes. It hardly took any time to put together, and the warm gooey goat cheese is pretty hard to beat. Make sure the cheese is well coated with the bread crumb [...]
